Tuesday, Sept. 3: Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.
I am a middle child and the only daughter. (Which also makes me the only niece and only granddaughter on one side.) I have an older brother and a younger one. We grew up in a small town in the middle of England. Surrounded by countryside, memories of walking up hills that seemed like mountains to my young legs. I think the factors that made me (apart from the obvious) are events, lots happened in my childhood. When I think about it some of the events were down to me. I created them and the result – cause and effect.
The first one I don’t even remember but it is a demonstration of my strength, stubbornness and darker side – I held my breath as a child, because I couldn’t get my own way. My mum called for an ambulance as I had passed out. I was fine, but she was told she had a highly wilful child (I wasn’t even a toddler) and the WORST thing she could do was give into me. In hindsight my childhood may have been easier if I hadn’t revealed my hand so soon! 😉
We learn a lot from our parents, I guess my mother helped mould the woman I am today. She is strong.
I am one of those people who aims and fires but doesn’t always get the target so I have to work for it and if I really want it, I will get it in the end. Once you have the success you tend to forget about the hardship you confronted along the way.
I am headstrong and have plenty of good role models in my life!
I have also learnt the importance of surrounding yourself with people who bring out the best in you and to turn to friends and family in times of need.
will tell you all about the writing event I am marketing, which I hope will be an annual event.
